Default Convert ASP web application to ASP.NET

Hello,

I am afraid this is going to sound like the most almighty stupid question...

I have written an application in ASP (VB Script).

I am thinking of re-creating the application in ASP.NET (VB.NET).

I am totally new to ASP.NET - will I need to start from scratch or can I re-use/adapt the majority of my existing ASP code?

I'd like to get a general feel for this... please can you paint the picture with broad brush strokes for me?

Thanks.

Steve

The code you have written in VBScript will be reasonably easy to port over to VB.NET because the syntax is similar enough. However, the technique used in ASP is quite different than in ASP.NET so there will be some level of re-writing required to utilize the capabilities of ASP.NET and to implement it in a good approach. I'd recommend getting yourself familiar with the way ASP.NET works (the event driven model) so you can implement it correctly. Also, the way you will interact with the controls will be different than what you are used to in ASP.

Thanks, Peter.

Can I mix the two? Can I continue to run my ASP application, but just compile parts of the VB as library files that ASP.NET uses?

You can make a .NET assembly callable from COM, so yes you can consume some .NET classes from an ASP application.
